She was a long-time nurse at Casa Rosa Hospice and cared for each and every one as if they were her own. She loved arts and crafts. She was always making something beautiful for someone. Herbals or a homeopathic way were always the way to go with her. She was an Aries, first to be on the front line of life. She will be greatly missed.
